Excerpts from A Degree of Wickedness: A Thrilling Tale Collection

Expected Release Date: December 2011

A Degree of Wickedness is a collection of thrilling short stories where a character, someone or something, from each vignette exhibits a degree of wickedness. Of course, someone has to die. Death may come in the form of a brutal murder or an act of desperation.

Characters include: werewolves, vampires, a serial killer, a gargoyle, a young girl, a pedophile, a harpie, a hooker, a burglar, an old woman and a couple of cats.

The expected release date is December 2011. I recently unveiled the cover art at the Steel City Con at the Monroeville Convention. You can visit my website and see pics from the event and check out my upcoming events. www.kimberly-bennett.com
